Drink of the Day: Witches Brew

October 19, 2015 | By | Add a Comment

We are only a couple weeks away from one of my favorite holidays – Halloween.  So, to get in the spirit, for the next couple weeks, I will be introducing some scary good cocktails you can easily put together for your friends.

I will start off by introducing to you a very talented bartender I have the privilege of working with.  She will have center stage this week, as I introduce cocktails that she was kind enough to share with the staff and customers at Twiisted Sushi Grill and Bar, where I am the bar manager.  As you will see as we go through the week, Crissa is very creative.  Plus, it gives me a few days off from trying to figure out to put up on here.

The first one of Crissa’s I am introducing is an easy build, flavored with grape and cranberry flavors.  Bravo, Mrs. Vallen!

Have a great Monday and a solid and productive week!  Cheers!

Method:  Build this in a highball glass by pouring the first three ingredients to measure.  Top off with soda water.  Stir.  Add a lime wedge on the rim of the glass for garnish.
